DESERT BUS 7

Not Dessert Bus! That is a totally different bus.

They’re going fucking bonkers over there, and their madness has been transmuted: at the precise second I type this, they’re at $262,124.94 for this year’s Child’s Play drive. That is so much. Drive on, drivers.

Today is a big day for PA merchandise. All of our 15 year anniversary stuff goes on sale today at 2pm PST. You can see a full list of what’s going to be available in this post right here. There are only 2000 of the anniversary pins so if you want one of those I suggest being ready right at 2pm. The Hanna pin was a run of 1000 and sold out in about 15 minutes.

We also have a new Fantasy Football shirt available today.

The Cloudboard
Posted by News Fetcher on November 18 '13 at 11:15 AM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
Sometimes people send me stuff so that I’ll try it and maybe talk about it on the site. It’s not a guarantee that I’ll talk about it, in fact most of the time I don’t but sometimes I really like it. The Surface Pro is a good example. They sent me one of those and I can’t stop talking about the damn thing. Well I got something else cool the other day and I wanted to share it with you guys.

The folks making the Discover Cloud Board sent me one to test out with my son and we tried it over the weekend.



It is a board that you plug into your computer or sync with a tablet. You insert these little puzzle blocks into it to build solutions to puzzles on the screen.



The various blocks will make your character on the screen take different actions. For example there are blocks to make your guy run right, left or jump. These blocks are placed in the middle row. Other blocks modify these actions by making them slow down or repeat and these blocks are placed in the top and bottom rows. Building a string of these blocks is sort of like writing a little program for your character.

15 Years of Penny Arcade!
Posted by News Fetcher on November 15 '13 at 03:30 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
It’s hard to believe but this month (November 18th specifically) marks Penny Arcade’s 15 year anniversary. We honestly had no idea what we were doing when we started. Certainly we didn’t intend for it to become what it has. When I look back at those first comics I remember those 21 year old kids living in a shitty apartment, eating Top Ramen, playing games and making comics. It seems like such a long time ago but when I read one of those old strips I remember exactly what we were doing and why we made it.

15 years is a big deal and to celebrate we are making some special stuff. All of this will go on sale in the PA store on November 18th.

First up is the limited edition 15 year anniversary pin.



This is an official Pinny Arcade pin with a limited run of just 2000 pieces. This is a dual layer pin. Think of it like two pins stuck together. In this case the year and the old Gabe and Tycho are on one layer while the new G&T are another layer on top.

Next up is the 15 Years of PA scarf.



Then we have a brand new Gabe T-Shirt that you’ve probably seen me wearing at PAX and stuff for a while now.

<img src="http://art.penny-arcade.com/photos/i-mQj32DD/0/L/i-mQj32DD-L.jpg"

This is probably my favorite shirt we've done. We're doing a ladies version too.

We’re also re-doing the classic Wombat shirt for the Ladies.



The update sports a new Wombat design and comes on a deep V neck women’s shirt.

Finally I have redrawn the very first Penny Arcade strip and we are making it available as a print.

New Pinny Arcade Site
Posted by News Fetcher on November 15 '13 at 03:30 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
Pinny Arcade has gotten so big that we felt like it deserved its own site. You will probably still see Pin News pop up here until we get people used to checking the new site for Pin info…pinfo? It has its own blog that we will use to highlight upcoming pins as well as give you a behind the scenes look at how they get made. You’ll see sketches and designs from me and the rest of the pin team here at PA. We will be using it during PAX to announce pin meetups and trading opportunities. We will also try and give you more in depth looks into projects like the Pin Ultimate edition.

Eventually it will have an incredibly robust pin encyclopedia…pincyclopedia? This will show you all the pins and give all sorts of info about them like how many were made and if it’s still in production or not. In addition to all that we’ve given Pin Pals their own form! So head over and check out out. We just launched it a few minutes ago so go give it a good once over and let us know if we missed anything. Also be sure and check out the new official Pinny Arcade Twitter. This will give you direct access to all of us on the Pin team.

PAX Australia Tickets Are Live
Posted by News Fetcher on November 11 '13 at 06:45 PM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
The first one was a blast, even at the venue we had, where we had to construct hallways out of canvas and pipe. The main question was, were attendees ready to PAX - PAX as a verb, to PAX properly? The answer came swiftly. It was an answer in the affirmative! There was zero ambiguity. PAX is something we discovered, not something we invented. And it was present in a profound way.

So we’re ready to do PAX AUS 2.0, with all the upgrades a full version number increase entails. That means a new venue, one not primarily used for equestrian events: it’s at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, which is large and might even be considered vast. That means larger theaters (“theatres”) at a minimum. The new dates are just about a year or so out from now: October 31st through November 2nd. You can get tickets to the event I have just described right here, and you absolutely should.

Child’s Play!
Posted by News Fetcher on November 08 '13 at 12:30 PM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
Jamie just delivered a massive Child’s Play announcement and I wanted to share it with you all. Here’s Jamie’s post from the Child’s Play site:

With the holiday season upon us, we wanted to share some exciting news from Child’s Play. Due to the incredible amount of support from gamers around the world, we’ve been working on a new initiative to benefit children and their families in domestic violence facilities. Those of you who happened to be at the PAX East 2012 Q&A with Mike and Jerry may remember the original announcement:



Since then, I’ve spoken with dozens of domestic violence shelter advocates across the country to understand how they operate and how we can best benefit them. With an entirely new initiative, we wanted to take our time and ensure we were making the most impact possible with your donations. Unlike the network of hospitals we serve, domestic violence shelters operate on a much smaller scale and can have specific needs and challenges: Anonymous locations, apartment-style housing, multilingual families, and more.

Within our pilot program, we have domestic violence facilities that provide emergency housing, long term housing, counseling, legal advocacy, and a variety of youth and family care programs, but there was one unifying factor to each and every one: They’re in need of ways to support, entertain, distract and interact with traumatized youth. One of our pilot applications summed it up perfectly:

“The very nature of family violence eradicates trust, self-respect, and physical and emotional wellness in all victims, but none more so than with the children. These “hidden victims” are often the most vulnerable, overlooked and the least likely to receive appropriate services during a time of intense trauma.

Canis Superior
Posted by News Fetcher on November 08 '13 at 11:00 AM
By Tycho from Penny Arcade:
The best part about Call of Duty: Ghosts is the dog, you’ve heard that. You might even know it yourself. The strange part is that as I sit down to type this, it’s seems like the only part. The only part I can remember.

I’m not sure I’m going to play through the campaign until I get one of the new boxes; one of them comes out next week, and another one comes out a week after that; it’s not like I can’t find the strength or whatever. I’m not playing the new Assassin’s Creed on current gen hardware, either. But in the portion of the campaign we played, I get mad if I don’t have the dog. And in multiplayer, these fucking dogs eat throats daily. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a dog eating a human throat - forever.

There are like a hundred dog comix you could do. We talked about it for like a fucking hour. I don’t know how this came to be the one! Be sure to give it a second. But the running dialogue we have is almost exclusively related to where the dog is at any second. I’m starting to think we should record these first hours or so as podcasts, who knows.
What I do know is that I haven’t won a single game in three nights of playing. Kiko doesn’t like anything, so not liking Ghosts isn’t a particular surprise - the levels are “rat’s nests” the spawns are placed nonsensically, he has filled up more than one lunch with observations of this kind. He’s excellent at shooters, though - he sees it a different way. I always die, all the time, in every game; it’s hardly data. But what he’s telling us to do is to go back to Black Ops II. Immediately. Which strikes me as bad news for this iteration of the product. A ball was dropped, somewhere.
